The last survivors of a mass murder
Throughout the years there were three mass murders where one girl survived the attack. The press calls them ’Final Girls’. Their names are Lisa, Sam and Quincy. Lisa was the first ‘Final Girl’ and she wants to protect the others, but about ten years after the mass murder that Quincy survived, Lisa was found murdered in her house. The day after, Sam knocks on Quincy’s door. She turns Quincy’s world upside down. After a few days, Quincy doesn’t know anymore what is real or not. Who can she still trust?
‘Final Girls’ was a flipback-/dwarsligger-style* book in a pile of books my dad bought. I had never read this type of book, so I borrowed it. I always want to try new things and with a thriller, I could not go wrong. So here is my opinion on ‘Final Girls’
This book reads like a rollercoaster. Some parts fly by and others feel like they drag you down. When you are about halfway through the book, you think you know what is going to happen, but the end still surprised me.
The best part about this book is the chapters that change between memories of Pine Cottage and what is happening now. I liked the chapters from the murders in Pine Cottage best since I understand this could happen. The chapters about what’s happening now quite weird. The way Tina Stone acts and what she does, doesn’t feel natural to me. Not even after a traumatic experience. But the last few chapters cleared that up a bit.
